"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

The View from the Yard, and, How to Be Good
Here's the view (looking down).
Nick Hornby's How to Be Good is on the turntable, er, page flipper. I thought it would be a fun read, as it is the story of a passive-aggressive man's conversion to utter goodness -- and there are so many utterly good, spiritual seekers in this area, that well, I thought I'd get a few laughs. And I'm not disappointed.
